Hiking and scrambling on Torridon's giants

The Torridon Giants are impressive mountains in the North-West Highlands. They are typically sandstone mountains topped of with layers of quartzite that shimmer in sunlight when wet.

There is some great fun to be had here exploring ridges, hiking to stunning coires and looking out to vast views. Over five days we'll be taking in some of the finest peaks - Beinn Alligin, Slioch, Beinn Eighe, Bein Damh and Liathach - exploring their ridges and crests, all while developing rock-scrambling techniques and skills.
